I had a number of requests for more Milky Ways photos, so here is another shot that gives you a better sense of the breadth of the Milky Way as seen from the Sahara Desert.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, EF24-105mm f/4L IS lens, 30 second exposure at f/4.0, ISO 12,800 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card. Triggertrap Remote helped me get the proper long exposure.

  1. Wow!!!! That is your best capture ever. Incredible. So glad the tent is in there for perspective. I can’t believe this is real.
